Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to Beauty Tues.

Last week on Beauty Tues, I talked about some of the crazy makeup trends for Fall 2015. If you missed my horribly hilarious application of the runway-to-real-life trends, click here–you won’t regret it *wink*

For this week on VIP Beauty Tues, I want to talk about a doable eyeliner trend–the double wing. Even though I am no makeup maven or trained artist, I was able to do this look without a lot of fussing, fighting or eye makeup remover *wink* 

In my research about double-wing eyeliner, I discovered a lot of people are taking it to the next level by using different colored liners, rhinestones, and doing things that I would need a stencil for *wink* BUT as most of you Beauty Tues followers know, the whole idea behind VIP Beauty Tues is to make beauty easy and doable because in the real world, we have bigger things about which to worry like getting to work on time or acing an exam. SO, below, you will find some nifty tricks on how to ace double-wing eyeliner + I spill the beans about my favorite liquid eyeliner that is cheap, but it works like a dream ♥

Prime your eyes first: Through lots of trial and error, I found out that using an eyeshadow primer all over the lid (or areas in which liner will be applied) helps in creating the perfect wing or cateye. It also acts as “insurance”–keeping your beautiful wings looking perfect all day sans smudging or smearing. My eyeshadow primer preference is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion here.

♦ Get close to the mirror (or use a compact): This might be a “duh” for some of us; however, I have learned the power of getting up close and personal with my bathroom mirror in my experimenting with different eyeliner tricks *wink* We beauty queens will do whatever it takes to have the straightest and perfectly winged eyeliner *fist in air*

♦ Find your liner-mate: This is CRUCIAL! With soooo many different liquid and pencil eyeliners on the market it can be a bit challenging to pick which best suits your needs. So, go to your local drug store, Sephora, or Ulta and pick a few different ones to try. Don’t fall for the ol’ brand-name trick with this one because the most expensive just might not be the best. In my case, I tried some of the most expensive liquid liners, but fell head-over-heels for the Sephora brand long-lasting 12HR Wear eyeliner (and it’s only $12 *GASP*). Check out it out below:

    here is my best tip for doing a straight line for cat eyes or wings…. when you get new clothes, keep the cardboard/paper tag…. close your eye, put the edge of the tag from the corner of your eye where it goes in a slant towards the outer edge of your eyebrow, then use your liner to run along the edge…. free and easy… :)
    * you can also use a business car and some people like tape, but your eye area is so delicate that I don’t like tape because it pulls
    ** also, you may want to practice this with a pencil liner for the first time to make sure you get the angle of the slant and the distance that you want, then you can either wipe off and try again or if you got it right, go over the pencil with the liquid eyeliner
